Thinking small: Biden scrounges for ways to break through:

As US President Biden’s domestic agenda stalls, he and his team look for ways to show the American people that they are still making progress. They are attempting to do this through small, discrete announcements. This was seen last week in his attempts to get more truck drivers on the road, him updating the Affordable Care Act with the support of former President Obama, and signing bipartisan legislation to help fund the US Postal Service. While all of the policies Biden is pushing will impact the lives of Americans, they fall short of the administration’s goals.
